The man who walks at Hitler's side in this film, Ernst Roehm, is murdered on Hitler's orders less than a year later. Roehm was making power moves which threatened Hitler's control on the state. So, in the next film a year later, in the more famous, or infamous, Triumph of the Will, Roehm is not by Hitler's side, but his successor is, the benign Viktor Lutze, as well as the sinister Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS and Gestapo, who made sure Roehm was removed.
